Today Huw Thomas from the Diocese of Sheffield, presented Bibles to our key stage two children via a live zoom.
All pupils were invited to the special collective worship, including our youngest children in foundation 1, who sat beautifully.
For many years, it has been a St Alban’s tradition to present our year 6 children with a Bible as they leave school in year 6. From today, we are doing things slightly different.
Children will be presented with a Bible when they move in to the juniors (year 3). This Bible will stay with the children as they move classes and they will take it home when they leave St Alban’s.
How will we use the Bibles?
Children will use their Bibles in collective worship, religious education and engage with it weekly in class. In addition to this, I plan to work with each class to explore some fantastic Bible stories that are not covered in our curriculum.
In the Summer term we will be presenting our lovely year 6 class with a new leaving gift, which we know they will cherish.
